FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our goal is to educate our patients on what to expect before, during, and after each treatment. Detailed information about specific procedures can be found on their pages, but this page will answer several frequently asked questions.

Is the procedure safe?

Ultrasound Cavitation is absolutely safe. While it has only recently been introduced in the U.S., this procedure has been in use all over the world since 2005 and well over 100,000 people have been safely and successfully treated with ultrasonic cavitation in over 50 countries over the past 9 years. Prior to 2011, only the wealthy and celebrities could afford to travel to Europe to use this revolutionary new procedure to maintain and improve their appearance. Since it’s introduction, here in the United States, it is still only offered on a limited basis, due to the high cost and limited availability of the advanced ultrasound cavitation equipment, required for the treatment.

What is Ultrasonic body contouring? What can I expect?

Ultrasound Cavitation is a new, revolutionary fat removal technique that has been used in over 50 countries worldwide and does NOT involve surgery – since it is painless, there is no need for anesthesia, any hospital stay, or time off work. Ultrasound Cavitation causes microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes and with its resonant frequency, the bubbles create high pressure that causes the fat cells to break up instantly. The broken lipocytes are then removed to the liver and safely metabolized out of the body which is assisted by drinking plenty of water. It produces lipolysis of fatty acids from adipocytes (fat-laden cells) due to a phenomenon known as stable cavitation, and increased cell permeability of the adipocytes. You get an increased flow of triglycerides. Furthermore, there is a breakdown of the fibers through mechanical action (jet stream). Finally, some content of adipocytes is metabolized by the liver and eliminated in the urine, so it’s always recommended to increase your hydration both the day of treatment and subsequent days. The procedure works to remove superficial fat and fat accumulation that is non-volumetric. Greater results will be noticed after six to twelve treatments.

The most problematic body areas are?

Abdomen – Flanks (love handles) – Thighs (saddlebags) – Buttocks – Face (chin and cheeks) Upper arms – Waist (love handles) – Back (bra line) – Thighs (inner and outer) – Hips (saddlebags) – Face (chin and cheeks) – Knees – Arms (back of arms) – Ankles.

How many sessions are needed to see results?

Within the first session patients may experience a decrease in measurements. Research has shown that most patients will require 6-12 sessions to achieve optimal results in the designated area. Lastly, the size of the area being treated and the patient’s fitness regimen will greatly impact achieving maximum results.

How often can you perform Liposculpture Ultrasound Cavitation therapy?

Ultrasound Cavitation therapy can be safely performed up to 2 times per week, with 3 days between each procedure.

Why is Ultrasound Cavitation different from other treatments?

Ultrasound cavitation is the most effective treatment for cellulite and fat reduction. Studies show that traditional liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, ordinary liposuction causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent. Ultrasound cavitation treats cellulite directly as well as the accumulation of fat, promoting smoother skin and reducing fat in selected areas. Ultrasound cavitation does not require hospitalization, anesthesia, needles, or any recovery time.

What can I expect during my first procedure?

During the first procedure, a thorough consultation of the designated area and several measurements and pictures will be taken. During the treatment course, our licensed technician will explain step by step in detail what the modalities consist of.

Who is not a good candidate?

Patients who are pregnant, have cancer, heart disease, coronary artery dysfunction of the heart, have arrhythmia’s or irregular heart rhythm, have a pacemaker, or Grade III obesity are not candidates for our treatments.

Are results long term?

The results are maintained, especially when combined with exercise and proper nutrition. However, we cannot stop the natural aging that affects your appearance. For this reason, we recommend maintenance visits.

What guidelines should I follow with Ultrasound Cavitation?

A low calorie diet is recommended and it is necessary to drink at least 1.5 liters of water before and after each treatment in order to eliminate the dissolved fat. Prior to the start of your Ultrasonic Body Contouring Treatments, please avoid eating breads, rice, alcohol and sodas. Massage the treated area to stimulate the dispersion of the contents of the eliminated fat cells. Lastly, spend approximately 30 minutes of mild exercise of your choice to increase your metabolic rate to aid in the elimination of the liquified fat. Ultrasound is a non-invasive method of reducing localized fat using ultrasound and radio frequency, which also has the benefit of skin tightening. The ultrasonic waves vibrate and break up the fat cells, which are then liquefied and eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary system.

What results can I expect with Ultrasound Cavitation?

Although this method of fat reduction can help to speed up the weight loss process when done in conjunction with diet and exercise. Ultrasound Cavitation is used for body shaping, to reduce those stubborn fatty areas that don’t seem to budge regardless of diet or exercise. It is also used for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening.

What are the contraindications with Ultrasound Cavitation?

Individuals with cardiac and vascular diseases, pacemakers, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid this treatment. Your personal physician’s certification may be required with certain individuals.

What is Ultrasound Cavitation?

It is a relatively new non surgical technique that allows the reduction of localized fat, breaking the bonds that form the fat cell, which your body will naturally dispose of.

What is the Ultralift?

High level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, combating puffiness and swelling and lastly improving skin care product penetration.

What are the benefits of the Ultralift?

Increase cellular turnover, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, fade dark eye circles, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage.

Does the Ultralift hurt or have side effects?

The process is safe, painless and gentle enough for extreme sensitive skin types.

What is Radio Frequency?

A heat induced therapy where radio frequency energy heats the dermis layer of the skin to tighten the skin without causing damage to the epidermis (top layer).

How does Radio Frequency work?

Radio frequency energy is used to tighten the underlying skin structure to help contour the face to create a more firm, toned and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Radio Frequency?

Provides aging, dull and tired skin an extra boost of collagen production and elastin synthesis that targets loose, saggy skin in the neck and chin, wrinkles and lines.

Would Ultralift/Radio Frequency be a good fit for me?

This treatment is great for those who are proactive and taking preventative measures to age gracefully. Along with patients that are seeking lift, contour and tightening. All different age groups and skin types will benefit!
